as concerns the MOTW , i always felt that a forum wasnt the best choice or presentation,
a blog with nested comments seems more appropriate.

i also hate it when people lock threads (in general),
Because it prevents further discussion of new developments on the topic ,
as well as prevents feedback when links break after a long period.
its a forum , its built to allow discussion.

this is not my forum and you are not me ,
but on my site , i leave comments on my posts enabled forever ,
you never know when a old post will have a broken link , or someone want to remind me i am awesome a few years later :lol:

Well, generally the point of a "Map of the Week" section is to put said map into the spotlight for said week. That is why we lock previous threads. If we were to keep them all unlocked, people would just post across weeks all the time, not giving any special attention to the current map.
Additionally, we do run out of maps once in a while. At that point we completely reset the MOTW cycle, putting all already-discussed maps back into the randomizer program and pulling maps from the complete pool again. Therefore, you WILL get to re-discuss certain maps sooner or later.

When I find more time to work on the new USP, I hope to implement a new, more automated MOTW system where the MOTW is heavily featured on the main site, lets you rate it (USP review schema or 1-5 stars), comment on it etc.

Having the rest of the threads open pretty much kills the whole point of MOTW.

Just a suggestion is all.
